Moving Pictures 5.1 surround sound remix to be released April 5th

UPDATE - 2/18@2:18PM: Eric at Power Windows points out that the DVD/BD that comes with the Moving Pictures 5.1 surround sound release will likely be the 5.1 mix, and the CD will be the stereo mix. This is based off the fact that the Porcupine Tree 5.1 mixes are on DVD-A disks.

Alex Lifeson first mentioned that Rush would be releasing a 5.1 surround sound remix of Moving Pictures in a Planet Rock interview a few weeks ago and elaborated on it in his VH1 Classic Rock Nights interview last Wednesday night saying that it's finished and that he was very impressed with the results. Rush engineer Richard Chycki gave some more insight into the remix in a recent blog post on his website and MusicTap is now reporting a release date of April 5th:

Previously, we had mentioned the remastering (and remix) of Moving Pictures, the 1981 best-selling Rush album classic, which contains “Tom Sawyer”. The schedule now lists it for April 5 with two available packages including a CD/DVD set, and a CD/BD set.

Thanks to rtrushfan for the heads up.
